OK, if I can chip in at this late stage...
I would love it if messers Fripp, Bruford & Wetton could get together for a tour and album - at least 5 of each! I wouldn't have David Cross, unless he confined himself to his keyboards (especially his Mellotron), as he would be swamped, in terms of volume and presence, by the rest of the band. I wouldn't have Muir, as he was pointless. Going by how Mel Collins and Ian McDonald play the Crimson oldies in the 21st Century Schizoid Band, I'd have one or the other - after all, both of them can be found on the "Red" album.

Would it happen? NOT A CHANCE! Fripp won't do a full tour as it would knacker him. Bruford won't work with Fripp any more. Wetton - I dunno. Muir has withdrawn from music completely, and paints somewhere in Cornwall. Collins still sessioneers, so he's not desperate for money. McDonald - I don't know. David Cross does his own thing on the Noisy Record label, AND is still pals with Fripp.
Co-incidentally, as you may know, Ian Wallace recently died of oesophageal cancer (R.I.P. Ian), something that (I've been told) David Cross contracted and beat - TWICE. Now that's rough justice on Ian.
IF (big if) Fripp reformed, He would HAVE to tour the UK, to compensate for not touring much here recently.

Sorry Nick, but that is one of the most absurd things anyone has ever said here.

You shouldn't have said that. He'll email you privately now asking for an explanation... :D

Have to agree with Owen on that one. Sorry NICK, but your credibility just took a huge nose dive. :roll:

I like what Jamie contributed to LTIA but you've got to admit that bruford is just as efective if not more all by himself. jamie was a great personality but Kc didnt really need him.

Muir's influence completely opened up Bruford's playing. If there was no Muir, you'd have Yes-Broof playing with KC, which would have been an exercise in futility. So Muir was necessary for that early band and for the development of Bruford's drumming at that time.

I dont agree

ever listen to the fish ? sounds to me like bill was already into percussion allsorts , as you can hear him playing what sounds like glass bottles in the background. very muir -ish indeed.

I dont think Bill was competely uninfluenced by muir, as I think Bills musical horizons were already fairly wide concerning percussion styles but what true musician meets another and doesnt take something away from it.

Well I think you are wrong. BB was a pretty flat player in Yes and then KC happened and he opened up a heck of a lot. Was this down totally to Muir or the more creative environment? I don't know. 60/40 methinks.

Not only did Bruford himself have rather high praise for Muir, as did Robert, but the Muir-era live discs in the Collector's Club are some of the most highly sought-after by fans.

BTW, while I didn't happen to agree with Nick's OPINION on that particular point, it's just that--an opinion, which as nothing to do with his "credibility".
Walking out's just another metaphor.
